Kanye West concluded a tweetstorm about his Tuesday meeting with President-elect Donald Trump by posting a cryptic tweet hinting at a possible 2024 presidential run.
West said in a series of tweets posted to his official account that he “wanted to meet with Trump today to discuss multicultural issues.”
“These issues included bullying, supporting teachers, modernizing curriculums, and violence in Chicago,” West wrote.
Hope Hicks, a spokesperson for Trump, told The New York Times earlier in the day that West requested the meeting with Trump.
“I feel it is important to have a direct line of communication with our future president if we truly want change,” West wrote.
West concluded his tweetstorm with a tweet hinting at a future presidential run:
The rapper said last year at MTV’s Video Music Awards that he was planning to run for president in 2020.
Earlier on Tuesday, West sent the political universe into overdrive when he entered Trump Tower in New York City.
Accompanied by his entourage, which included a videographer, the pop culture icon walked into the lobby shortly after 9 a.m. ET for a meeting with the president-elect.
“We’ve been friends for a long time,” Trump told reporters after the meeting, adding that the two discussed “life.”
Asked by reporters whether he had anything to say about his meeting, West said only that he wanted to take a photo.
The pair then shared a surreal handshake before parting ways:
West said at a recent concert that he would have cast his ballot for Trump had he voted in the 2016 presidential election.
Soon after his pro-Trump outburst, which was widely covered in the news, West canceled the remaining shows on his tour and was checked into a Los Angeles area hospital for exhaustion. He checked out in late November.
